>> announcer: the following program is a paid advertisement for the food lovers fat loss system, brought to you by provida life sciences-- practical solutions for better living. >> i'm annette, i'm from studio city, california. i'm a mother of three, i weight 155-1/2 pounds. this is the heaviest i've ever been. i'm a size 10. ...and this is me now! i lost 25 pounds and went from that size 10 to this size 2 in just 12 weeks. how did i do it? i became a food lover. >> i'm a food lover and i lost 36 pounds. >> i'm a food lover and i've lost 50 pounds. >> i'm a food lover and i lost 60 pounds. >> i'm a food lover and i lost 82 pounds in eight months. >> what if you could actually lose weight eating bread, pasta,
7:01am
sweets, even wine and chocolate? when you're a food lover, there are no forbidden foods. >> i don't have to deprive myself of anything. i can have wine, i can have chocolate. i can have pasta, i can have bread. i can eat all my favorite foods and lose weight-- i've done it. >> all of the things that helped me to get so big are now helping me to lose weight. >> i tell everybody it's the best diet i've never been on. >> sound too good to be true? i thought so. but then i found out just how easy it is to say good-bye to the old me and start loving a new, leaner, healthier me. >> announcer: now you can stop dieting, stop starving yourself, and start eating all the foods you love at every meal, snack in between and lose fat faster than you ever thought possible, with the food lovers fat loss system-- 21 days that will change your body and your life. developed by health and nutrition leader provida life sciences, the food lovers fat loss system is the
7:02am
culmination of more than 15 years of research and real-world testing that gives you fast, dramatic results without prepackaged foods, complicated calorie counting and without starving yourself. the food lovers fat loss system is a simple step-by-step plan for eating more often and using the right combinations of your favorite foods to even out blood sugar levels and move your body into fat-burning mode and keep it there all day long. so you actually use the foods you love, all the same foods you're eating now, to cause your body to lose pounds, shed inches and literally turn your body into an efficient fat-burning machine, all in just 21 days. >> you don't have to deprive yourself from eating your favorite foods, but you're still able to lose weight and i think that's very important. and that's very different from traditional diet and weight loss programs. >> you're increasing your metabolism based on the way you're eating: how frequently you're eating meals, how you're combining, let's say, proteins even with bad carbs.
7:03am
if you can do it in a balanced way, you can lose weight, lose body fat and yet still eat the foods you thought you never could eat. >> i know that you can eat all of the foods you love and still lose weight, because i have lost 115 pounds. >> i'm eating pizza and cheeseburgers and i've lost 50 pounds. >> i ate my favorite foods all day long and i went from a size 18 to a size 6. >> hi, my name is annette o'hare, and i've been asked by provida life sciences to come here and tell you about the food lovers fat loss system, not because i'm a famous celebrity and not because i had anything to do with creating the product, but because i'm a regular person: a 42-year-old mother of three who used the food lovers fat loss system to lose 25 pounds and four dress sizes in just 12 weeks. it's the first weight loss program that made total sense to me and i can tell you three things: i was never hungry, i never ate a food i didn't like and i never deprived myself
7:04am
of a single one of the foods that i love. >> i don't eat diet food. i don't eat little bits of celery and little bits of this or that. i eat fried chicken. i eat french fries. i just eat these foods in the right combinations and i eat more frequently throughout the day. you can have all the foods you like, all the foods you love every day, day in and day out and still lose weight. before i started the food lovers fat loss system, i wore a size 16. this dress is a size 4... in just six months. >> since i started the food lovers fat loss program, i have lost 115 pounds. in the past, i have tried to lose weight by fasting. i would skip a meal, i would skip breakfast, i would skip lunch. i would eat very, very little and it never worked for me. using food lovers fat loss program, i have eaten more than i ever have in the past and i've lost 115 pounds.
7:05am
you do not have to get rid of any of the foods you love. my favorite meal with food lovers fat loss program is fried chicken, green beans and chocolate cake. you don't have to change what you eat. you just have to change the way you eat it. i was eating everything i wanted to eat and lost 115 pounds. and i went from a size 48 jean to a size 38 jean in one year. >> on food lovers fat loss program, i've lost 41 pounds. before i tried food lovers, i tried the program where you have their prepackaged food. it was very expensive and i didn't want to eat that the rest of my life. i tried to do a low-carb, no-carb plan and i think i lasted maybe two days. i missed eating pasta. i missed eating bread or toast at breakfast. i felt very deprived when i was on the other diets. that was frustrating, so i couldn't stick to it. with the food lovers fat loss program, i ate pizza,
7:06am
cheeseburgers, cookies, chocolate and wine, and i lost 41 pounds. i went from a size 16 to a size 8. and i've kept it all off-- i've maintained for about nine months already. >> when i first started doing the food lovers fat loss program, i realized that i had been making weight loss way harder than it needed to be. once i learned a little bit about how my metabolism works and how my body processes the food i eat, then i realized that i could really use all my favorite foods-- all the foods i was already eating-- to speed up my metabolism and burn off the excess fat. the real key was understanding how my body metabolizes carbohydrates. i had heard that carbs made me fat, but i love carbs and i wasn't willing to give them up. well, as it turns out, i didn't have to.
7:07am
see, there are two kinds of carbs: slow carbs-- that's greens, most veggies, certain fruits-- and fast carbs. the ones i love and was unwilling to give up are these, the fast carbs. that's things like bread, pasta, sweets, even beer and wine, and they can cause you to gain weight if you eat them the wrong way. but... they don't have to. let me show you what i mean. this is a typical day's worth of food, not unlike what my family and i ate before i started the plan. waffles for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and a meatloaf dinner. but the problem with these meals is they don't have the right ratio of fast carbs to protein and slow carbs. let's take a look at breakfast. it's essentially all fast carbs and that means it has the tendency to elevate my blood sugar levels, and that puts my body into fat-storing mode, basically telling it to store everything i eat as fat.
7:08am
and that was happening at almost every meal. what i learned on food lovers was i didn't have to give up any of these meals. i just had to tweak the proportions so that i had the right balance of protein and slow carbs with my fast carbs to even out my blood sugar levels and move my body into fat-burning mode. it was that easy and i didn't have to give up anything. i could still have a sandwich for lunch and my family's favorite meatloaf for dinner. but i just had to tweak the proportions and ratios to turn them into a fat loss plate and then those very same meals will even out my blood sugar levels and cause my body to burn fat rather than store it. then i learned one other thing, and this was really hard for me to get head around, since i had been a chronic dieter. it turns out, i wasn't eating often enough. see, when you go a long time without eating, like i did, between meals and in the
7:09am
evening, your blood sugar drops and your body thinks it's starving, putting your body once again into fat-storing mode at the bottom here. so, what did i do? i adjusted my eating schedule and started snacking in between meals and into the evening. now my blood sugar levels stay even, keeping my body in fat-burning mode all day long. it was that easy. you really can eat all your favorite foods and reduce your waistline every single week. >> on the food lovers fat loss program, i lost 82 pounds in eight months. what i love most about the food lovers fat loss plan is that i did not have to give up any of my favorite foods. you would think that that's what got you into this trouble in the first place, but you can eat every food that you love, you just have to eat it in a certain way so that you can keep your body's metabolism going. i eat cheeseburgers and i eat
7:10am
pizza and i eat pasta and i eat spaghetti and i eat macaroni and i've lost 82 pounds. you can have everything that you want: cookies, cake... it's all there. no food is off the table. if you eat your meals and you eat your snacks right up until an hour before you go to bed, you lose weight like crazy. it just amazed me how it melts off. in 21 days, i lost 25 pounds. in three months, i lost 50 pounds. and in eight months, i lost a total of 82 pounds. >> i get to enjoy all my favorite foods still and i've lost 48 pounds. >> i thought starving was the way to go and it turns out it's not-- it's eating. [laughs] i did lose 60 pounds by eating all my favorite foods. >> i'm eating the same foods as i ate when i was heavy-- i'm just doing it in a way that allows my body to drop fat. >> with the food lovers fat loss system, i have lost 40 pounds and 40 inches. >> i lost 48 pounds. >> i lost 75 pounds.
7:11am
>> i've lost 90 pounds. >> i've lost 94 pounds. >> i lost 144 pounds in one year. >> on food lovers fat loss system, i've lost 200 pounds. >> this program is absolutely the best thing you can do and i'm sure it's a lot cheaper than everything else you've ever done. >> announcer: now you can stop dieting, stop starving yourself and start eating all the foods you love... and lose fat faster than you ever thought possible, with the food lovers fat loss system-- 21 days that will change your body and your life. this simple step-by-step plan shows you how to use all of your favorite foods-- all the same foods you're eating now-- to cause your body to lose pounds, shed inches and literally turn your body into an efficient, fat-burning machine, all in just 21 days. >> you really can learn to eat the same foods you're eating now in a way that allows you to lose weight instead of gain it. >> this program is an excellent way to lose weight and keep it off for a lifetime. >> announcer: the heart of the program is the 21 day metabolismmakeover. each day you just do one new

thing, like learn the difference between fast carbs and slow carbs, and begin to tweak your meals into the simple, scientific proportions of the fat loss plate that will lower the blood sugar spikes and move your body into the fat-burning mode. then you'll start snacking in between meals to keep your body out of starvation mode and in fat-burning mode all day long... and literally turn your body into an efficient fat-burning machine all in just 21 days. and then you can stop dieting forever. with the lean lifestyle program, you get all the tools you need for you and your family to lose all the weight you want and be lean and healthy for the rest of your life without starving and without giving up a single one of the foods you love. the million meals menu planner will show you how to make a fat loss plate with absolutely any food, including bread, pasta, sweets, even wine and chocolate. just choose one food from each of the three sections: proteins... fast carbs... and slow carbs...

7:18am
system, i lost 50 pounds. i tried med... you know, the doctor supervised programs. i tried-- i won't mention names, but all the programs you see commercials for, i probably tried them. the other plans didn't work because i love food. i mean, it was miserable eating because you felt guilty and then it was miserable starving yourself because you were always hungry. the food lovers fat loss system showed me how to eat my favorite foods in a way that allowed my body to continue to release weight. and it's been two years and i can eat whatever i want and enjoy life and the weight doesn't come back on. i'm a food lover and i lost 50 pounds and i've kept it off for two years. and here i am to tell you honestly this program works. >> i'm a food lover and in eight months i've lost 50 pounds. the food lovers fat loss program is definitely a family-friendly program. it's food that we all eat
7:19am
anyway and that has been the best thing. on other programs, i've been eating a frozen meal or... something that's totally different. but now, when they're eating pizza, i'm eating pizza. when they're eating cheeseburgers, i'm eating cheeseburgers. i'm not having to go and fix something different. in eight months, i've lost 50 pounds and i've gone from a size 16 to a size 8/10. >> on the food lovers fat loss system, i have lost 48 pounds and i have lost 33 inches off of my entire body. i have listened to some of the other diet programs and every time they said the word "diet," i felt like i was going to have to give stuff up. i have... i've given up nothing for food lovers. i have pasta for lunch several times a week and i eat potatoes, i eat rice, i eat cookies, i eat brownies. there are absolutely no foods that are forbidden on the food lovers fat loss system. i actually eat more now than i've probably ever eaten in my
7:20am
entire life. when i was heavy, i was eating two meals a day: lunch and dinner. and now i eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and i have a snack between each one. i have lost 48 pounds and i have gone from a size 40 waist to a size 34. >> look, nobody's saying that you can eat a whole pizza at every meal or an entire bag of cookies every night and still lose fat. we all know we have to make some changes, but what i can tell you is that you don't have to make any drastic changes and you don't have to give up any of the foods that you love. with food lovers, it's about learning how to make little changes to the way you eat that will give you huge results. so you can't eat a whole pizza at every meal, but you can still eat pizza and cookies and chips and all the other foods that you love and still lose weight. i know because i did it and lost 25 pounds and four dress sizes. and it will work for you too. >> announcer: call or log on now to try the complete food lovers fat loss system for just six

7:22am
really tough. i've tried every diet under the sun. there was always successes with losing weight, but it was through deprivation, so as soon as i would get off of whatever that diet was, i would gain it back. so the biggest thing with the food lovers program is that we're eating the same things now that when i gained the weight but... except for now we're eating them and we're actually losing weight. it's counterintuitive, but it works. on the food lovers fat loss program, i lost 100 pounds in 10 months. i was a size 50 when i first started and now i'm a 38... 36 in some jeans. >> on food lovers fat loss, i have lost 50 pounds in 10 months and i'm down from a 16 to a size 8. my husband ordered the food lovers fat loss system and at first i thought it was totally ludicrous. i'm like, "there's no way this is going to work. i can't eat this much and lose weight. but i said, "o.k., i'll try it. i'm gonna, i'll do it with you." and i did it and the pounds starting coming off. i wasn't hungry, i ate anything i wanted. and i... i'm amazed.
7:23am
i'm amazed. on the food lovers fat loss system , i lost 50-1/2 pounds in 10 months. i've lost almost a total of 34 inches, i've lost eight inches in my hips and almost nine in my waist. you can lose weight on the food lovers fat loss system and eat the foods that you love. i've done it. i was skeptical in the beginning, but it works. >> when i first heard that i could still eat all my favorite foods and lose weight... well, honestly, it sounded too good to be true. but, i gave it a shot and in just 12 weeks, i lost 25 pounds and i lost eight inches off my waist and five inches off my hips. food lovers makes it easy, because it's the only program of its kind that actually guarantees you will lose weight or you pay nothing. there's no risk. the only way to truly know how easy it is to learn to use all your favorite foods to actually lose weight and keep it off for life is to try it for yourself.
7:24am
it worked for me and i know it will work for you, but you have to pick up the phone and call. the next food lovers success story could be you. >> i was skeptical when i saw the infomercial. i had my doubts, but i thought, hey, it's a money-back guarantee-- what have i got to lose, other than weight? i lost 30 pounds and 33 inches in about six and a half months. >> all you're doing is eating and then you're eating the foods that you like. what else is there to it? >> you can eat all the foods you want to eat and you will lose weight. >> i am living proof. i lost 55 pounds. i went from a size 20 to a size 8 and i am practically 70 years old and i am here to tell you, it works. >> announcer: call now to try the food lovers fat loss program risk-free so you can stop dieting, stop starving yourself and start eating all the foods you love and lose fat faster than you ever thought possible. you get the 21 day metabolism makeover, which walks you step-by-step through every meal and snack and shows you how to use the food you love to

>> announcer: the following is a paid presentation brought to you by edenpure heaters, proudly made in our own factory in north canton, ohio. all of the testimonials are by actual edenpure customers, who volunteered their stories and were given another edenpure heater in thanks for their participation. >> hi, i'm richard karn coming
7:31am
to you from north pole, alaska, here with edenpure's biggest celebrity endorsement ever. >> hi, i'm vic lynne from north pole, alaska. i'm talking to my friend santa here to get a new edenpure heater for christmas. >> ho, ho, ho, ho. because what we say about edenpure in alaska, don't be home without it! ho, ho, ho. >> [chuckles] that's right, don't be home without it. that's the message we kept hearing from edenpure customers here in alaska where the weather got down to -72 degrees last winter. but, the big surprise was how many of our customers in the lower 48 said the same thing during one of the mildest winters on record. >> during this warm weather, i've just been blessed to not have to turn on my gas heat at all. i've been able to utilize the edenpure system. say if i'm looking at tv in one room, i can turn the system on in that room, i can be comfortable. there's been times i've even had
7:32am
to turn it down. but it's just been a phenomenal savings for me during this mild winter that we've just had. >> announcer: from vic lynne using his edenpure to save on heating oil in alaska to ocala where florida residents frank and maureen tatasciore hate their heat pump... and from kai rose cutting her gas bill in new england to nogales where pamela pasquiera saves over $100 a month warming cold desert nights, all over the country, happy edenpure owners are saving big money by taking control of their home heating bills. so dial back that wasteful furnace and let the proven edenpure gen4 help you save big on heating bills while keeping you toasty warm. >> winters here in north pole are long and dark. our record this winter was 74-below. no windchill, that's the real temperature. the edenpure is very good for distributing heat very even.
7:33am
when i first turned it on, i thought, "oh, i don't feel a lot of heat, i don't know if this thing's going to be that good or not," and in just a matter of a few more minutes, i just, "wow." it was just, the whole house was just nice and warm and comfortable. the old furnace just shut down and that was the end of that one. [chuckles] >> oh man, i am freezing. >> richard, what are you doing? >> i'm turning up the heat. it was cold in alaska. >> so go put on a sweater. don't you know what it costs to heat this place? >> well, next time you go to alaska. >> hey, now. >> [chuckles] does that sound familiar? the back and forth discussion between comfort and cost? >> yeah, and unfortunately too many families have this same discussion every year, especially now during these tough times for the economy. >> but it doesn't have to be that way. not when you can use an edenpure heater to both save money and be comfortably warm, like don and sandy aiuppa in anchorage. ...well, when it was -72 in north pole, anchorage was having
7:34am
a record snowfall-- over 134 inches. but don and sandy had it all under control. >> i know that the edenpure saves us money. we're able to keep our thermostat at between 60 and 65 during the winter time, where if we didn't have something like this, we would have to have it between 75 and 80 degrees just to keep the floor warm enough for us. >> you know, there is a big concern about using space heaters and you hear it every winter, someone's getting in trouble, families are perishing, houses are being burned down. not with edenpure heater. it doesn't get hot to the touch at all. this is an important issue for me because we have a three-year-old granddaughter that comes over quite often and we can relax knowing that she can touch it, drop a toy on it. but the device itself is not hot, it's a very safe appliance. it's one of the best reasons we bought it. and it's one of the best reasons after operating it that we're going to keep 'em. >> so, richard, i'm glad to hear
7:35am
about our friends in alaska talking about their comfort and safety as well as saving money, because edenpure can not only slash heating costs, it's safe. it will never get hot, so you can rest easy. plus, edenpure emits heat that quickly fills your room with comfortable, even warmth from the floor to the ceiling. >> that's right. take a look at this test footage shot with an infrared camera. old-fashioned burning coil heaters shoot out dangerously hot currents of air that quickly rush up to heat the ceiling. they actually burn the air and that wastes expensive energy. here you can see how hot the old-fashioned heater gets and over a 15-minute period, it shows how all the heat from this old heater rushes up to the ceiling while the rest of the room is cold. >> now let's run this same test with an edenpure. you can clearly see that over the same 15-minute period, the edenpure gently warms the entire room, enveloping it like a comforting blanket. and look at the edenpure itself-- it doesn't get dangerously hot like burning coil heaters.
7:36am
so not only is edenpure cost-efficient, it also heats faster and it's much safer than old-fashioned space heaters. >> now, at this point, we'd normally tell you about edenpure's unconditional 60-day, money-back guarantee, as well as our famous five months same-as-cash payment plan. but rather than me tell you, let's go back to alaska one last time to meet roberto mata, a young father who gets laid off every winter. >> well, the monthly payment plan with the edenpure-- at that particular point in time, it was the dead of winter, i was laid off. i'm a construction worker in alaska and it's hard to do construction when everything's frozen, so the 60-day money-back option was huge for me. and i bought it being laid off and i bought it comfortably. it was the right thing to do because the money i saved on my natural gas heat, the edenpure was able to pay for itself before i was finished paying for the edenpure.

7:40am
>> welcome back. in addition to hearing from our customers in alaska, we're also going to be answering some of your most asked questions, like this email from tony chernosky in cleveland who asks, "can you explain what's behind the government report that shows how wasteful home furnace systems are?" >> richard: sure, tony. now the report you're talking about on home heating from the department of energy says that the average american home may be getting only half the heat you're paying for. now here's the department of energy document number so you folks at home can look it up online. but i'm going to quote from the report now. and then it goes on to conclude that... >> so what does that mean to the family paying their heating bills? >> well, the typical home has a
7:41am
furnace with a forced-air system. the heated air is delivered through metal ductwork to each room. the problem is that most homes have bare metal ducts that can run along uninsulated outside walls or through cold attics. in those cases, the metal ducts themselves would be chilled to whatever the outside temperature is. and when the furnace kicks on, it has to work to heat the ducts up before it can deliver any heat to the living area. it's the same principle people often see with their hot water heater. you turn on the shower and it has to run and run before the water gets hot at the shower head. that's because the pipes are cold and you have to heat them up before you get the hot water in the shower. and of course, you're paying for that wasted heat. but the problem is even worse with forced-air heating ducts because they're probably also leaking heated air into the crawlspaces and you can't even know how bad the problem is without paying for an expensive pressure test for the whole system. >> well, now, what about these newer furnaces that are supposed to be more than 90% efficient?
7:42am
>> ah, well, now there you've hit upon the dirty little secret of the replacement furnace industry. now that 90% efficiency number only refers to the immediate output of the furnace. it does not refer to how much heat is lost through the ductwork. according to the department of energy, a high-efficiency furnace can give you 90 cents on the dollar for the fuel you pay for, but another 25 to 40 cents on the dollar could be lost in cold and leaky ducts. >> so by the time you actually heat the living area, the average homeowner really could be losing half of what they spend on heating. to show how this happens, we asked our technology correspondent tony harding to meet with a home heating expert. >> i'm here with karl balla, who is a certified home energy rater. so, tell us, karl, what are we looking at here? >> well, tony, this is a typical home, 10 years old, forced-air furnace, standard metal ductwork. >> and what is that you're holding there?
7:43am
>> well, this is a special infrared camera. i use it to show my clients how their homes are wasting heat. >> well, why don't you show us all how it works? >> well, stand next to the furnace. we can see the basement is about 58 degrees, the furnace box is about 130 degrees and your skin temperature is right in the middle. >> so what can you tell us about this home's heating system? >> well, let's take a look at the main duct as it stretches away from the furnace. see how every joint in the ductwork is hotter than the duct itself? that tells me heat is escaping from these seams. >> and that's not because the ducts are damaged, it's the way they were designed. >> that's right; there's a little space in between. that way they don't pop and crack, especially when it expands when it gets hot or contracts as it gets cold. unfortunately, it also leaks heat. >> right. >> here, you see the joint to the vent to the floor above.
7:44am
you can see how much blowback heat is being thrown back into the cold basement. >> that's bad enough down here with all this cold concrete to soak the heat away. but what happens where the duct goes up an outside wall? >> well, let's go up and find out. ...here you can clearly see the heat being lost right through the siding of the house. and just look at that heat leakage at the top vent. >> that really tells a story. you know, now that you've pointed it out, i can actually feel the warmth right here on the wall. >> yeah, and this is about 30 degrees. can you picture the amount of heat being lost on a bitterly cold night? >> yes, i can, and there's no easy fix. to seal the duct or put an extringulation in, you'd have to tear the complete wall open. >> that's exactly right, tony. >> that really tells the story. >> it does. but even better than high-tech infrared cameras, long-time customer jim haney showed us how
7:45am
every homeowner can test their own system in just five minutes. this is so simple and so easy, you gotta try it. >> to determine how much heat you may be losing in a duct system on a home furnace, go under your home, touch your ducting near the furnace and feel the heat that is coming out of the furnace immediately into the ducting and then go into your home to the nearest vent in the home and put your hand in front of that vent and feel the heat there. you will see a tremendous reduction in the heat that you had felt at the furnace and what you're feeling at the vent. that will give you an indication as to the amount of heat you're losing in your ducting system. >> well, we had to replace our gas furnace two years ago. it was getting very old and the people that replaced it said we would be saving a lot of money with these new furnaces because they were so efficient. but with that $5000 cost,
7:46am
we certainly didn't save any money on our gas bill that we have saved just in the last two months by having this edenpure heater. i just went through our bills, both electric as well as gas, and it was a considerable difference in what we had paid the year before. i had indicated over a $180 difference in that one time period.

all three heaters online, our power bill dropped over $250 and we were just thrilled at that. >> prior to the edenpure heaters, we were spending approximately $4- to $5000 a year just to heat the house because we were using four to five tanks of propane a year. after the edenpure heaters, we do about a tank and a half a year, which is dramatic savings. dramatic. >> announcer: in this special television offer, you can save up to $102 and have an edenpure gen4 delivered to your home for only $39. that's right; we'll send you a brand-new model directly from our factory in north canton, ohio for only $39 with free shipping. after 60 days, if you're not completely satisfied, you can return the edenpure and receive your money back and we'll even cover your return shipping. you can't lose. visit tvheaters.com for details.

[phone rings, ♪...] >> welcome back. so far we've found out why the average homeowner is losing up to half the heat they pay for and we've learned how the edenpure quartz infrared heater has helped many thousands of american families cut their heating bills. let's go now to meet neil tyburk with the technical details on what makes edenpure's quartz infrared heating so efficient and so effective. >> this new fourth-generation edenpure has at its core another quantum leap in heating efficiency. edenpure worked with our technology partners at sylvania
7:50am
to yet again increase the efficiency of the edenpure system for turning electricity into safe and comfortable warmth. the heart of the system is this newly designed and patented infrared tube. this exclusive technology creates waves of infrared heat at a prescribed wavelength to be most efficiently absorbed by our specially designed, pure copper heat exchangers. these cured copper heat exchangers absorb this infrared heat and transfers it as ambient warmth to the air flow provided by our new edenflow air motion system. the filtered air is channeled along the outside of the copper heat exchanger and then routed back through the center of the chamber to effectively double the surface area of the heat transfer zone. our new edenflow system is contained and directed by a new interior housing which not only directs the highly-efficient air flow, it also acts as another safety barrier between the
7:51am
heating elements and the exterior casing. this is just another example of edenpure's working to be the safest heater you can buy for your home, as well as the most efficient. >> looking at alternative sources of heat for my home, when i ran across the edenpure the one thing i liked about it was that it didn't have any direct heat that would set a fire on your furniture, your pets, your family, anything like that. and being a fireman, we run into, several times a year, we run into these space heaters that create fires and burn homes down, cause life damage, property damage. and that was my big selling point on the edenpure, more than even the cost savings, was the safety issue of it. >> so, richard, we know our customers love the safety, but what do they say about the best way to save money using an edenpure? >> ah, well, i found out there are two major ways that adding an edenpure saved them money on their home heating. first, because you use an edenpure exactly where you need the heat, virtually 100% of the heat you pay for is delivered directly to the living area.
7:52am
nothing is lost either up the chimney or in a cold or leaky duct, so right off the bat, you scale back on your furnace that might be only 50% efficient by adding a system that is virtually 100% efficient. but the people saving the most money are using their edenpure for zone heating, which is impossible with their existing furnace set up. so, they lower the whole house thermostat from 72 to 65 or even 60 degrees and use the edenpure to create a comfort zone in the living room, the family room, whatever room they're living in. this is why the average edenpure customer saves only 15 to 25% on their overall heating costs, but individual customers using this zone heating technique have saved much, much more. this is gloria smith, a retired elementary school principal. edenpure first visited gloria in 2008. here's what she had to say then. >> even though we use the propane gas for cooking,
7:53am
in addition to heating, the edenpure heater has still cut our heating bill in half, by 50%. and i've found that amazing. >> richard: now, four years later, we asked gloria if she liked her edenpures. >> well, i wanted to know my exact savings with the edenpure heater and since i've been using them for so long, i went back on the computer and checked my bank statements. over five years, i've saved over $17,000. and when i compared the electric bill, it would drop down to probably about $15,000, which is still a substantial savings for me and it was more than i anticipated finding. so i was elated to know that i had saved as much as i had. >> so, here we have a woman who
7:54am
still has the original model she bought in 2007 and showed us the documentation that she has saved over $15,000 in heating costs even after factoring in all the extra electricity she used to run her edenpures over that five year period. >> richard, these testimonials are fantastic. you know, but in the short time we have left, what would you say to chris davis of albuquerque who asks, "how can i be sure your testimonials aren't just paid actors?" >> richard: well, that's a fair question. after all, this is television. but look closely. when we use a customer's testimonial, you'll see the customer's full name and where they live. if you look at some of our competitors, they have testimonials from mary b. or phillip q. our testimonials are all from real people who are actual customers, all of whom volunteered their comments based on their own personal experience. >> but i've gotten, i don't know, scores, maybe 100 calls
7:55am
from all over the country and people will call and ask me, "is the things that you said about that edenpure heater, is that true or is that just a bunch of junk?" and so i'll get into a regular rap with them and tell them all the good things because i'm genuinely enthusiastic about it. >> people call up on the telephone and ask if i'm the heater man. they've even gone so far as to ask if they could borrow my heater, which i think is stretching it a little bit. but they'd like to get the address and i think i've given the address of edenpure out about 40 times. >> well, many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on tv. and so i've shared with them my savings and how i'm able to save and economize by using the edenpure heaters.
